What is LHR?

It's official NVIDIA have introduced an improved hash rate limiter to newly manufactured graphics cards; reducing their effectiveness for mining cryptocurrency and bringing more graphics cards back into the hands of gamers, GeForce RTX GPUs have introduced a range of cutting-edge technologies - RTX real-time ray tracing, AI-powered DLSS frame rate booster, NVIDIA Reflex super-fast response rendering for best system latency, and many more - created to meet the needs of gamers and those who create digital experiences. Identified by a "Lite Hash Rate or LHR Label" NVIDIA believe this additional step will get more GeForce cards at better prices into the hands of gamers everywhere.

WindForce 3X Cooling System

Brilliant Performance Needs Brilliant Cooling

The Gigabyte AORUS GeForce RTX 3060 Elite features the WindForce 3X cooling system, featuring 3x 80mm unique bladed fans alternate spinning, 5 composite copper heat pipes direct touch GPU, 3D active fan and Screen cooling, which together provide high efficiency heat dissipation.

Alternate Spinning Fans
By opting to spin the central fan in the opposite direction, the turbulence of adjacent fans is reduced whilst increasing air pressure to give you better throughput.

3D Active Technology
3D active fan technology provides semi-passive cooling; keeping the fans still when the GPU is under low load (demand), once a heavy task is initiated the fans will spin-up to provide maximum cooling performance, letting you work without distraction and play without worry. located on the side of the GPU an LED indicator will always let you know the current fan status.

Screen Cooling
Aorus have opted to implement an extended heatsink to allow the airflow to pass directly though to provide better overall heat dissipation.

Direct Touch Heatpipes
The shape of the pure copper heat pipe maximizes the direct contact area with the GPU. The heat pipe also covers the VRAM through a large metal plate contact to ensure proper cooling.

RGB Fusion 2.0

With 16.7M customisable color options and numerous lighting effects, you can choose lighting effects or synchronise with other AORUS devices to create your own custom dynamic lighting ecosystem.
